Blackfoot Junior Girl Scout Troop 129 built a community pantry and has planted out in front of the Farmer's Insurance office run by Brevic Landon, at 688 W. Judicial Street.
The rule of the pantry, written in large letters on the pantry cover, is "take what you need, leave what you can."
The pantry is a project the troop of 4th and 5th graders have been working on since October.
"The girls came up with the idea," Kristi Dewey, the troop leader said.
Once the pantry was built, they looked to find it a home.
"They got a hold of me initially through email about setting up a food pantry at my office," said Brevic Landon, a Farmer's Insurance agent whose business is at the corner of W. Judicial and S. Birch.
"I thought it was a great thing to do so I got a hold of my landlord to see if it was okay with him—and it was," Landon added. "I'm happy about it. I wish I could have been here when it was set up but it's in and it looks fantastic."
